Sir (Marc) Aurel Stein (1862-1943) was a Hungarian born, British scholar, Indologist, archaeologist, explorer, and geographer. In 1883, he received a Ph.D. in Indology and Old Persian from the Universität Tübingen. Stein's archaeological expeditions eventually took him to the Silk Road, the overland trading route between China and the West. He also retraced Alexander the Great's eastern campaigns. His expeditions took him to India, Pakistan, China, Chinese Turkestan, Iraq, and Persia. Some of Stein's later explorations were funded by Harvard University and he also presented lectures at Harvard's Lowell Institute.

His expeditions took him to India, Pakistan, China, Chinese Turkestan, Iraq, and Persia. Stein's greatest discoveries were at Tun-huang where he found the "Caves of the Thousand Buddhas," which contained an incredible store of manuscripts and frescoes. The caves had served as a storehouse from the 5th to the 10th centuries but had been walled off since the 11th century. Stein's discovery is said to be the greatest archeological find ever made in Asia. Some of Stein's later explorations were funded by Harvard University and he also presented lectures at Harvard's Lowell Institute. Stein died in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1943, at age eighty, just before commencing an expedition.
